Tea-Lightful Quilted and Bound… Time for Tea!

Tea-lightful by Thistledown & Co has been quilted with swirls to represent steam rising.  The binding was all machine stitched with a winding pink stitch.  All the work is done and it’s time for a tea break with a couple muffins.  Mmmm.


And while I sip my tea and nibble on my muffins I’ll show you a few more patterns from Thistledown & Co.

Bertie The Butterfly is fluttering about against a background of flowers.  This 9″ x 11″ quilt is made with fabrics printed from the Push-Button Prints CD.


The Coneflower Calypso pattern is shown in two color ways. . . soft and pretty & bright and bold.  A sheet of Whisperlite is included for the fusible parts of this project.


When winter hits us full force and you are wishing summer were here, you can work on Beachwalk and escape for a bit.   The center of this lap quilt (54″ x 60″) is a blanket with all the beach necessities surrounded by several pairs of brightly colored flip flops.


Here are some no-calorie sweets.  Lollipop Garden combines easy applique with a stacked coin border for a bright, fun quilt.


Well, the tea is gone, the muffins are but crumbs, so it’s back to the sewing room!

Tea-Lightful… Finished Top

The Tea-Lightful quilt top is finished!   All the teacups added to the center block, all the borders attached. 


And all the handles are embroidered. 

Don’t look too closely at the handles :)  I should have used the temple provided in the pattern but I got lazy and sassy and figured I could do it freehand.   They did get better as I went but the first couple of handles look a little wonky.

Next step is quilting…. hmm… what to do?

Water Please.

Do you have a water cooler in your office? in your kitchen?   Don’t miss the opportunity to personalize it and add a decorative touch.  Thistledown & Co has four patterns for water bottle caps. 

Bubbles is swimming around with his friends, right at home with all the water.  This would look great with batiks or hand dyed fabrics.


Don’t forget the water bottle when you are decorating for the holidays.  Rejoyce! features the wise men as they follow the star to Bethlehem.


It’s a long way off, but when It’s Springtime you’ll be ready with this garden, complete with yo-yo flowers, embroidery and button embellishments.  Flowers galore!


For the summer holidays, you can add a patriotic touch to your water bottle with God Bless America.   Uncle Sam is flanked by two kittys waving flags.


 And for smaller water bottles…. It’s A Wrap

Do you take your water bottle in to meetings or sew-ins or anywhere else and then wonder which water bottle is yours?  These cute wraps will solve that problem and will brighten things up!  Pattern includes four designs plus a ready-to-trace alphabet so you can add your name or any words you choose.


So you can see, Linda’s patterns really are varied and these are an example of the fun practicality I mentioned earlier in the week.
